China Medical University

Introduction About University

China Medical University (CMU) was the first Medical University which was established by the Chinese Communist Party in 1931 as ‘Military Medical School of the Chinese Workers and Peasants Red Army’ in Jiangxi Province. However, the School was renamed to ‘Health School of the Chinese Workers and Peasants Red Army’ in October 1932. Prior to half a decade of being established, the school moved to Shaanxi Province in December 1935 and further shifted to Yan’an in January 1937 being renamed to ‘Health School of the Eighth Route Army’ and was finally renamed to its current name ‘China Medical University’ in September 1940. In November 2945, the school moved further Northeast until 1946 when it reached Xingshan (Currently known as Hegang), Heilongjiang Province and absorbed Northeast Military Medical University and in January, 1947 also absorbed the Medical College of Northeast University and Harbin Medical University partially. In 1948, China Medical University created four branches, out of which two go by the modern-day Harbin Medical University and one as Chengde Medical College. Finally, in November, 1948, the University shifted to its current day location of Shenyang by engulfing Shenyang Medical School and the previously private Liaoning Medical College. Since 1954, China Medical University has been under the administration of the Chinese Ministry of Health. In 1956, China Medical University was renamed to ‘Shenyang Medical College’ before regaining its name of ‘China Medical University’ in early 1978.
